Casual, creative summer days down on Main Street Cocoa Beach Art and family events gaining traction




Downtown Cocoa Beach provides perfect landscape for events, music and art. While most people associate downtown Cocoa Beach with tourists, tiki bars, visitors and locals can wander off the beaten path to find a more creative vibe that is bubbling.

 “Expression takes many forms and we have an array of choices,” says Beth Javens, Executive Director, Cocoa Beach Main Street.  Our recent Art Walk featured local taverns and nearly all of them had artists on-site or art on display.  Our Friday event series has a loyal following. They are well attended and people from all over the region come out to support it.” Last month we had two food truck vendors make their debut (the crepes, by the way, were delicious!”).

Art Galleries are open at Debrilcha on North Orlando and appointments can be made with Rick Piper, Mike Moffett, and more.
